Charlotte Hill, a pupil at St Anthony’s RC Primary School, performed the switch-on honours when, accompanied by gran Janet Hill, of Lostock Hall, she was among 300 walkers at the start of the lights in Bispham. The group then marched or meandered the promenade’s full five miles to Starr Gate.With entry fees and sponsor money, this year’s Walk the Lights, which took place earlier this month, is expected to raise approximately £5,000 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s 20 Years Anniversary Appeal.
